MVP, Illumifying Knowingness
My career has brought me to many areas of higher education and professional development. Business school prepared me for the commercial aspects of education, and graduate school shown a bright light on the impact technology can have on education. The thing is, the status quo in the education sector just wasn’t cutting it for me. It didn’t feel right to tell people what they needed to know, nor to show them how much they were missing. Knowing there is so much more to the process of self development than what is made available to us in the education system, I pooled my wealth of accumulated experience and invested it in a pivot.
Turning away from the standard, the regular, and the norm, I began to explore what study could be if approached from the vantage point of the one who already knows. That’s when I realized: it’s not about learning anymore. The new model of education is all about remembering.
My role at Illumify is to leverage the power of the question to expand one’s awareness of themselves and of their world. The beautiful thing about remembering is that it requires no preparation. There’s nothing to study in advance. There are no wrong answers and there are certainly no losers. There are, however, two prerequisites to entering the process of remembering: a willingness to go there and the courage to face what’s been stopping you until now.
The Illumify Game Changer is an experience in remembering. When you let the questions on the cards guide you, there is nothing stopping you from discovering a path to living a much richer and more meaningful life. A life in which you matter and where what you do makes a difference. An innocent question can do wonders in opening up the world you only dare dream of. Facilitating the Illumify Game Changer is a privilege. The experience illuminates the spirit in humanity, it amplifies the potential we all have to live life to the fullest, and it unifies all of us in knowing that there are great things ahead as long as we’re willing to stand for what we know could be, should be, and most definitely must be.
